The healthier alternative to chips. Kids love them and don't realise they're missing their chips. Served with a salsa or sour cream they also make a very good starter.

If you have not made your own Tex-Mex seasoning, then a packet of El Paso Taco Seasoning Mix will do fine - use 2 tablespoons, not the whole packet. The rest will keep in an airtight container.
